QUESTION 1

  1. “Ashes of Life” by Edna St. Vincent MillayLove has gone and left me and the days are all alike;
    Eat I must, and sleep I will, – and would that night were here!
    But ah! – to lie awake and hear the slow hours strike!
    Would that it were day again! – with twilight near!Love has gone and left me and I don’t know what to do;
    This or that or what you will is all the same to me;
    But all the things that I begin I leave before I’m through, –
    There’s little use in anything as far as I can see.Love has gone and left me, – and the neighbors knock and borrow,
    And life goes on forever like the gnawing of a mouse, –
    And to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow
    There’s the little street and this little house.In addition to rhyme, what other sound device does the poet use to create feelings about the subject?

QUESTION 5

  1. “After the Winter” by Claude McKaySome day, when trees have shed their leaves
    And against the morning’s white
    The shivering birds beneath the eaves
    Have sheltered for the night,
    We’ll turn our faces southward, love,
    Toward the summer isle
    Where bamboos spire to shafted grove
    And wide-mouthed orchids smile.

    And we will seek the quiet hill
    Where towers the cotton tree,
    And leaps the laughing crystal rill,
    And works the droning bee.
    And we will build a cottage there
    Beside an open glade,
    With black-ribbed blue-bells blowing near,
    And ferns that never fade.

    What kind of rhyme is used in the poem?

QUESTION 7

  1. “Saturday’s Child” by Countee CullenSome are teethed on a silver spoon,
    With the stars strung for a rattle;
    I cut my teeth as the black raccoon–
    For implements of battle.

    Some are swaddled in silk and down,
    And heralded by a star;
    They swathed my limbs in a sackcloth gown
    On a night that was black as tar.

    For some, godfather and goddame
    The opulent fairies be;
    Dame Poverty gave me my name,
    And Pain godfathered me.

    For I was born on Saturday–
    “Bad time for planting a seed,”
    Was all my father had to say,
    And, “One mouth more to feed.”

    Death cut the strings that gave me life,
    And handed me to Sorrow,
    The only kind of middle wife
    My folks could beg or borrow.

    The tone of the poem can best be described as which of these?

QUESTION 9

  1. “Sorrow” by Edna St. Vincent MillaySorrow like a ceaseless rain
    Beats upon my heart.
    People twist and scream in pain, –
    Dawn will find them still again;
    This has neither wax nor wane,
    Neither stop nor start.

    People dress and go to town;
    I sit in my chair.
    All my thoughts are slow and brown:
    Standing up or sitting down
    Little matters, or what gown
    Or what shoes I wear.

    Which best explains the contrasting lines “People dress and go to town: I sit in my chair”?

QUESTION 10

  1. Read the following poem and answer the question that follows.”To My Valentine” by Ogden NashMore than a catbird hates a cat,
    Or a criminal hates a clue,
    Or the Axis hates the United States,
    That’s how much I love you.

    I love you more than a duck can swim,
    And more than a grapefruit squirts,
    I love you more than a gin rummy is a bore,
    And more than a toothache hurts.

    As a shipwrecked sailor hates the sea,
    Or a juggler hates a shove,
    As a hostess detests unexpected guests,
    That’s how much you I love.

    I love you more than a wasp can sting,
    And more than the subway jerks,
    I love you as much as a beggar needs a crutch,
    And more than a hangnail irks.

    I swear to you by the stars above,
    And below, if such there be,
    As the High Court loathes perjurious oaths,
    That’s how you’re loved by me.What do the all the comparisons in the poem create?
